Well, now, this is rather sudden... (in Public Record)
Yikes, I didn't think this would happen any time soon. My parents have decided that I need to take a break from CB, and from gaming in general, for a while. (To the tune of 2-3 months.)
This is rather disappointing, as I wanted to try that wall/ToE strat, but I suppose I'll have to put it on hold. (Along with my plans of _ever_ finishing an NCB.)
In commemoration, I've decided to put together this appreciation thread, and when (not if) I miss you (not intentionally!), here's a special thanks for all of you: Thanks, you guys are great!
To those I can remember specifically, in no particular order (except that Nov is first):
novice, for being one of the nicest people I've ever met on the internet. His helping me, helping NUBs, and helping everyone are absolutely invaluable. And putting up with me when I am constantly negative in CPs. ;)
Ranger, where would we be without you? Your a great fellow, and I'll definitely miss you. :)
three4thsforsaken & lostling, your strat advice is priceless. Your definitely making this a greater game, and a better place to be.
3B, Shade, Draco, and Idiotz, the greatest possible clanmates. Its been real fun playing with you guys, and hopefully we'll do it again sometime. ;)
Zenai, incredibly nice person, and has made this game a far better place since he (re) joined. I'll miss you!
LC, great to hang around with, great to talk to, and along with some of you others, holding the UC flame aloft.
Goodfish/BadFish, you two are great. I'm sad I couldn't stay for your epically-uber contest, but good luck to all the winners!
You guys are also shining stars on here. Proud to have known you. :)
dudemus, thanks for helping me (and countless others!) with our NCB and data. You've always been nice (and helpful) to talk to.
Wasp, always been a good friend, and good luck with that RoBF run!
OpVines, fun to talk to, and generally good humored. Good luck out-naming GW!
Godwolf, boy, would CB be different without you. (In a bad way!) Wish I could have, and I hope to, get to know you better. ;)
Hatch, pretty much ditto to GW. :D
Gun and Loch, pretty much synonymous with one another. They both make me laugh whenever I talk with them, and two nicer people (well, Loch, anyway ;)) you couldn't find. (Just kidding, Gun.)
Rawr, sorry for being able to beat you. ;) Good luck destroying the top!
NS and Jon, what can be said? Thanks for keeping the best place on the internet kicking!
J'bob, I. Am. Not. An. Eskimo. Really. (If you haven't already, get to know J'bob, he rocks.)
Hakai and Meso, this pretty much sums it up: :D
Sut, Lord Bob, and Sickone, pretty much disagree with you guys on everything politically/scientifically/religiously. But your also very nice, and always a pleasure to talk (read: argue) with.
JS and Eliteofdelete, always loved your strats, good luck with your characters!
Slayer, my common sense tells me Darkfall isn't that great, but to each his own... ;)
And I'm sure I'm missing a bunch, but I <3 you guys too. ;)
(Note: I'll not be "selling out" except for selling 10M for USD, the rest I'm keeping for when I start back up. Hope to see you all again then!)
A break from gaming over the summer? Bad report card, eh?
Ahh Marly, I know how ya feel. I've butted a lot of head with my parents over my video game playing. Hope it all turns out well, it usually does.

Hope you come back after your forced hiatus.
We will be here waiting.
Yeah, waiting to kick you in the teeth!
Later Marl, have fun man and don't tick your parents off. :P
At the moment, it is only a matter of time till this happens to me. See ya soon Marl!
June 6 2009 9:44 PM EDT
Come back soon Marl we will miss you tons!
June 6 2009 10:15 PM EDT
Adieu. I sure your parents have their reasons. I'm sure they think it's good for you.
When you come back, we will have a party!
"...stay gold, Ponyboy...."
June 6 2009 10:51 PM EDT
And thanks for recognizing me, I'll miss you, truly.
awww, sorry to hear that. The battle will be waiting for you when you return! take care!
Have a nice game-free summer, go outside :p

My roommate followed Darkfall hype religiously. Then tried it, and only was on for about two weeks. -Too many people running around naked looking for easy kills to get stuff without any penalty.
June 7 2009 12:13 AM EDT
Best of luck with this CB break, I wish you won't have too big of a withdrawal.
Take care and hope to hear from you around as soon as you can.
June 7 2009 12:39 AM EDT
/me shakes my angry plastic fist in the air!!!!
They cannot keep you from us for long Marly...
(after all, for as old as you are ... your parents have to be ANCIENT!)
see ya soon enough lil bud!
June 7 2009 12:52 AM EDT
Your public library has internet access right? ::cough:: What? I'm not saying defy your parents... I'm just saying that you should visit your local library. A lot.
And I hope to see you back in a few months. At 13, you already seem sharper than most adults.
June 7 2009 1:42 AM EDT
nonononono! wai u leave?
Totally unfair. I'm uberbummed that you won't be on CB, Marlfish! I know I speak for both Badfish and I when I say that it'll be a shame to have you miss out on the contests... and on CB in general. Come back soon!
June 7 2009 3:53 AM EDT
Why don't you get your folks to join CB? That might make it awkward for you, but at least you'd be back.
On the other hand, I remember trying to avoid my parents for pretty much my entire teens so....
Dude, you can't leave?! All the best to you either way. Enjoy your 'break' and don't do anything too crazy!! I'm sure most of us will be here waiting :P
damn marl, that sucks. Especially now all those new games are out :P
Good luck with the studies man.
Well, Henk, if this extends into November, there's a plane ticket to Paraguay with my name on it. ;)
Thank you everyone! I hope to be "back" a.s.a.p., and really appreciate everyone's comments. :)
P.S., I woke up to 14 CMs. ;D
June 7 2009 9:19 AM EDT
poor marl, hope to see you back soon!
June 7 2009 9:31 AM EDT
Good luck with that whole "going outside" thing. There's just too much light involved with that for my tastes.
See you when you get back :)
I, as well as all of KHII will miss you dearly!
June 7 2009 11:12 AM EDT
keep it real bud and see you when you return
At least you'll have some good books to read. Take it easy. You'll be back before you know it.
June 7 2009 7:28 PM EDT
Love you Marl. :) Good Luck in life, hope to see you around again soon!
June 9 2009 3:17 AM EDT
/me pats Marl on the back
Come back kiddo, or we will use the tracking chip I just put on you!
June 9 2009 4:07 AM EDT
Don't effing leave.... :(
Well, it isn't really a "I'm leaving 4eva!!one!1!" kind of thing. More like a "I'm not going to be playing competitively and only logging in once a day or two" type thing.
